Newmarket Daily Speed Figures – 2 May 2015


Newmarket Racecourse is taking the headlines today (Saturday 2 May) because the legendary Frankie Dettori will make a rare appearance back in the saddle. Although showers are on the weather forecast, it is expected that the ground will hold up and that the going will be good to firm.

Dettori is only scheduled to ride in the 14:00 Suffolk Stakes Handicap, which is the first race of the day. For some quality horse racing speed ratings free of charge, we look to the latest analysis from the Racing Post.

From the outset, we need to caution against backing Dettori. Despite being seeded third, he is riding a 63-rated horse in All Set To Go. Moreover, the four-year-old is inexperienced and has not won a race in six outings.

A brighter prospect is the 113-rated Bronze Angel. The six year-old has won twice and finish third once in the past six races it entered.
